governments for the very first time talking at least on a cabinet level today and a russian defense official discussing ukraine with nato members in brussels. and tamron, amongst this swirl of activity, you've got russia and the west's end games, which are beginning to emerge. on the one hand, washington and berlin are pushing a plan agreed to by western foreign ministers today in paris that would include international observers, direct talks between moscow and kiev and new elections in may. the russians, on the other hand, want to see a return of viktor yanukovych, they call him the legitimate president, he would have new elections, not in may, but december. there's a big gulf between the two sides, but at least, tamron, they are talking again. back to you. >> absolutely, thank you very much, jim maceda. now let me bring in new york congressman elliiot engel, he's also a member of the congressional ukrainian caucus. sir, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >> i know defense secretary chuck hagel was at a house hearing this morning giving an update and he said he and general demps
heard it again today from the russian defense minister. he maintained that no, there are no russian soldiers occupying crimea as it stands. they maintain this position that they say it is local self-defense teams, local militias, and we only know on the ground what we see and what our own cfn teams have seen. there's some local militias but undoubtedly russian soldiers. not wearing the insignia but heavily armed, driving armored vehicles, some of those vehicles have russian registration plates. very difficult to see how negotiations can proceed when the russian position is just that they have not begun any occupation of ukrainian territory. >> phil black in moscow. as we mentioned at the top of the hour, russia is due to take part in nato's discussion of the cries in ukraine. john kerry is due to meet with his russian counterpart. kerry lamented russian's absence ever his counterparts from great britain and ukraine. >> we have our friends from ukraine and great britain, partners in the budapest agreement of 1994. we're missing one member, hopefully meet this afternoon with that indi
you back 14 years. defense secretary donald rumsfeld said we're going to have a revolution in the future we're not going to be fighting lower-tech fights. we need a high-tech force. and that's what happened when a bunch of guys with box cutters went on planes. we don't know, the responsibility of the superpower can be prepared for a variety of contention. >> is the american public prepared to finance what brett is talking about? >> what happened in europe, the german army is 32,000 or something like that. they simply don't have the defense spending such as the french and british. >> american public will support these kinds of commitments only if the american president uses the leadership to explain to them why it's necessary. and let's sort of understand the context. you mentioned the pivot to asia. made a special trip to asia to reassure that it was real. they doubted our commitment to syria. in all of the areas of the world that senses the united states is pulling back. and if we cut through defense forces like this, they're going to start making deals with whoever they n
was called the western defense zone. so they were we moved -- removed, they were forced to leave, and they were put in camps surrounded by barbed wire, and they were not charged with anything in particular. west coast non-japanese-americans, the population in general, most poll constitutions, most newspapers strongly supported the removal of japanese-americans. it was a very popular policy locally. the civil rights organizations which were largely based back east didn't pay much attention to it. in all of the major jewish newspapers on the west coast, they were weeklies, and they had editorials talking about how the rights of all are to be protected, and we should fight prejudice in all of it forms and so on and so forth without ever saying the word "japanese" specifically, so it was almost as if they wanted to say something but were nervous about actually doing so. so there was, i call it a kind of awkward silence or an uncomfortable silence around this issue that i started to investigate more. >> this weekend booktv and american history tv look behind the history and literary l
of the two military commands and review of the 2015 defense authorization. some of the other topics include nsa surveillance programs and the use of strategic nuclear arsenal. they testified for about two hours and 15 minutes. >> [inaudible conversations] >> good morning, everybody. today we begin our annual posturings with the combatant commands by receiving testimony from the u.s. strategic command of the u.s. cyber command, a sub-unified command of the u.s. strategic command. let me welcome admiral cecil haney in his first appearance before the committee as the command of u.s. strategic command, and general keith alexander in what may be his final appearance before the committee as command of the u.s. cyber command. general alexander also serves as we know as director of the national security agency, and when he retires at the end of next month he will by far be the longest-serving nsa director in history, and we thank you both for your extraordinary service. this hearing comes at a time of reduced budgets across the u.s. government, including the department of defense. even though this
troops back. foreign minister sergey lavrov say the pro-russian griewpts are quote self-defense forces and they do not answer to moscow. he made the remarks in madrid. he says russian naval personnel are in their normal deployment. we have seen those ships off of the coast. kerry laughed when he heard this at the news conference that they are claiming they have no control over these russian troops that are really pressing back against the ukrainian troops. gregg: some of their armored vehicles have russian insignias identifying them as russian even though they are dressed in dark outfits with no other indication. back to our top story. we are waiting to see if former irs official lois lerner will testify in a house oversight hearing on the targeting of organizations by the irs. back in may of last year she famously invoked her fifth amendment rights not to talk. let many get to our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel. any independent casings what she is going to do? i suppose there are several options. >> reporter: darrell issa and the attorney for lois lerner have been talk
. since when has china's military spending made headlines? since today. the defense budget going up just as the president scaled back here. look at this, it is not real. it is another buzz creator. back to reality. "varney & company" about to begin. ♪ >> what exactly wanted to fix the problem caused by citizen united. what exactly does that mean? would you please turn the mic on. >> my counsel has advised me that i have not waived my constitutional rights under the fifth amendment. under his advise, i decline to comment. >> you will not tell us who wants to fix the problem. >> on the advice of my counsel, i exercise my fifth amendment right. >> ladies and gentlemen, seeking the truth is the obligation of this committee. i see no point in going further. i have no expectation that lois lerner will cooperate with this committee. >> may i ask my question? >> you are all free to leave, but the gentleman may ask his question. stuart: that was intense. it was almost uncomfortable watching it unfold. the main witness said nothing. lois lerner pleads the fifth, again. judge andrew napolitano is
of the military with deep cuts to the defense budget. the proposal pushes health and human services spending over 1 trillion for the first time ever. what does the budget proposal mean for your wallet? we will break it down at 5:40. the first primaries of the 2014 election season are in the books. the elections in the texas area easily solved abbott and davis get their party's nominations. but things weren't quite as simple for the nation's oldest member of congress. 90-year-old republican ralph paul who is seeking his 18th term did not win 50 percent of the primary vote. which forces him nool a may runoff against former u.s. attorney jay ratliff. son of former governor jeb bush won the primary for texas land commissioner. he's expected to win the january election in november. >>> massive crowds celebrating mardi gras in new orleans. this morning the party is dying down because today is ash wednesday. this is a day where christians mark the beginning of the len ton season. they prefair for easter sunday and jesus' resurrection. on this day ashes are applied to believer's forehead like that. it is
in crimea because they weren't russian soldiers and insisted they were some sort of self-defense force who couldn't be ordered around by moscow. so a key thing. what we did see today from europe with this $15 billion aid program promised, linked, of course, to an imf deal, that again, priority being to try and bail out the ukrainian economy, to put it back on an even footing. the priority for the western powers. because at the moment in the words of the finance ministry here, the coffers are empty. there's no money in the ukrainian treasury. it's about stabilizing ukraine and about at this point, keeping them calm while the western powers work on calming down the russians, if you like, chris. >> you know, i go back to 1961 in august, when khrushchev put up the wall in berlin separating east and west berlin. kennedy saw it with relief. he said better a wall than a war because it was better the soviets did that on behalf of their clients in east berlin and east germany than to go to war and close down west berlin all together. in this case, i'm trying to see what a reasonable decision by put
as a murder/suicide situation. so there may be charges. an insanity defense is something the defendant may consider if in fact, she's charged with a crime. but they rarely work and are usually unsuccessful at trial. >> but, ken, do you not agree they have to investigate her medical and mental health history here? maybe that's why the sister called. maybe there is a history here which is why she got to her breaking point and had a psychotic episode. >> i'm going to have to step in. i love justice files because we all get into this and riled up, but i'm going to have to leave it there. thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, jon stewart calls out the right wingers for their strange obsession with food stamps and seafood. you'll want to see this. >>> also, today's shameful vote against the man that president obama wants to lead the charge on civil rights. what was this vote really all about? that's next. ok, here's the way the system works. let's say you pay your guy around 2 percent to manage your money. that's not much, you think except it's 2 percent every year
than a year later, george zimmerman who says he shot trayvon martin in self-defense was found not guilty by apall female nearly all white jury. the stand your ground law altered the way the jury was instructed. it also raised questions about how the case was prosecuted, particularly after jurors started speaking out, including mattie, the lone member of the jury who was nonwhite. >> it's very hard to be one of the persons that had to deal with him being free right now, but just to know that in my heart, you feel that a person is guilty, but when it comes down to the law, they give you so much that you can work with. >> now a new book takes up inside the george zimmerman he map jury room and we're learning more about maddy, about her interaction with other jurors and about the potential missed opportunity by prosecutors in the zimmerman trial. lisa bloom is a "today show" legal analyst who covers the trial and also a legal analyst for avo.com. her new book, the inside story of the trayvon martin injustice, is in bookstores now. thank you so much for joining us. george zimmerman
not seen since world war tear to killed the venerable playing in the military arsenal with the defense community with the defense industrial lobbying complex subset also proposing a big increase in transportation spending surface transportation from mass transit with the overhaul of the corporate tax code. those are the two most interesting things he will be proposing in a year with his budget it will be relatively quiet budget years. >> host: you write in your most recent column it is late when does it get released? >> the budget law requires the president to put out the budget by the first monday in february. that is why it is one month late. there is no penalty for missing this deadline and he has a couple of times before and last year when every says it was even later but this year it is late to was not going to have much of in the fact because of the resolution of last winter budget debate there have been so many fiscal clefs that have been difficult to keep them straight but the budget debate ended in december this so-called paul bryan murray budget the democrat who is the senate
defense official is discussing ukraine with nato members in brusse brussels, as well. so, kristen, what's emerging, it seems in this -- from the swirl of diplomacy is a couple of end games. the russian plan and the western plan, if you will. washington and berlin pushing hard now for something that would include international observers to replace the russian or pro-russian forces in crimea, direct talks between russia and kiev, and new elections in may. now, reduction erussians want t return of viktor yanukovych to head a national unity government and new elections in december, so there's a gulf between the two sides, but at least the two sides are talking again. kristen if, that doesn't work, don't expect to see russian forces pulling back from crimea anytime soon. back to you. >> all right. jim maceda, thank you for that reporting from moscow. we appreciate it. >>> joining me now, california republican ed royce, chairman of the house foreign affairs committee, holding a hearing on ukraine tomorrow. thank you so much for joining me this morning, congressman. appreciate it. >> thank you
to a coherent approach, looks at what secretary hagel just announced the new cuts to budget, at defense. and then today we're supposed to believe they will take tough new steps, and imminent more budget dollars, toward this burgeoning problem. if you look at it, you know. politically, if john kerry out polling you with confidence of american people, and you are barack obama, you have to can be worried. lou: and that is a terrific points. doug, ukrainians right now, left we forget they are at center, the epicenter of this crisis. they must be terrifically anxious about there are future, it sthr an is there any clirty foty clarity. >> none, vladimir putin made it clear he is not invading eastern, crane, for now. he made is clear he is not an economy "crime stoppers: cas -- yiemia for now, they say who knows what happens next. they look and hey say, we're going to have try to have presidential elects in may, we'll try to have economic asis sudden stuns from europe and united states put in place quickly. while they are outlines of the all of those processees in place. there no certainty. lo
cost of providing health care in this country because of defensive medicine and expanding opportunities that people have through tax policy to get their own insurance, tax credits to allow them to have their own insurance policies. so the whole range of good republican ideas out there, but we don't get a chance to get those considered today because in the united states senate at least, democrats blocked those initiatives. you have a president and white house for whom this is his signature initiative. he will certainly veto anything we send him. jenna: you don't get to tell the dealer which cards to give you. you have to just play them, right, senator? that is what you're facing and focus is the election later this year and we'll certainly talk a lot about that. senator, great to have you back on the program as always. thank you so much. >> thanks, jenna. jon: have you heard this? there is a new pitch to make baseball's opening day a national holiday. who is behind it? will it fly? do you like the idea? we're live with that story. jon: a novel pitched to congress about america's pastime.
, man, edge knows that oscar is innocent. he's taking that as intimidation. today, the defense attorney gave hints on timing. he said to this witness you call security at 3:13 a.m., and that call lasted 58 seconds. then you got to your balcony to continue to witness what was happening at 3:17. oskar eriksson at 3 in the 19:50, you get the idea how precise the timings are becoming now, called for help after he had broken the door down. so what the defense is saying now to this witness. you didn't hear gunshots, you heard oskar eriksson breaking down the bathroom door with a cricket bat when he realized that reeva steenkamp, his girlfriend was shot or wounded inside. and we've had testimony from the fourth witness taking the stand, a professional boxer, friend of oskar eriksson, looked up to him because he was helping him with his diet for his training. talking about how they were in a restaurant just over a year ago. oskar eriksson passed a pistol under the table. he was told there was a bullet in it. the bullet discharged, hit the floor. oscar asking a friend to take the blame for that.
defensive and it could be dilutive to their talk at what they are buying is rapid growth. to their stock. but they are buying is rapid growth. it was purely defensive from their own of view. you can't look at whatsapp and said that per user, blackberry can get $3.6 billion. do haveys to have -- valuation of blackberry messenger. greg, it is ah different user base. if you look at blackberry and blackberry messenger, it is mostly professionals that are using it, they are using it for collaboration, they're using it to leverage the productivity. to sort ofpeals more the average consumer. john, but do you expect, that eventually he is going to spin it off? >> you know, he indicated in a bloomberg interview yesterday that is certainly a possibility. his plans are to scale up that business but they have 85 million subscribers. he needs to get that larger. i think he is going to do that by developing some functionality user at, again, that core that is looking to blackberry messenger for collaboration and enhance productivity. >> john, thanks so much for joining us. restructuring specialist gre

have to go on offense because if you are playing defense you will lose >> they have to have an answer about obamacare. their belief they can exist in a spin cycle and win the message by talking about the war on women or chris christy's bridge. the vice president said it is time to stop apologizing about anything. the democrats have nothing to apologize for. when you see kay hagan stutter and stall when asked question about the law and the people loosing their policies and can't see their doctors they don't have answers. so at some point, they will have to have answers for how you fix what is wrong. the agreement is there is a lot wrong with the law and democrats need to say we tried, we are sorry and here is how we fix it. >> you will hear that in november from the candidates. the president is going to washington today. what does he say? what is his role during this mid-term election season? >> his team previewed it for politico and they say the president is going to tout the grassroots organization, fire up the base, go on attack with the income inquality and attack republicans and f
all because the department of defense refused to classify the assault as anything but workplace violence. now those soldiers being hit with more bad news. their live expenses are set to skyrocket. sergeant lunsford was shot seven times in that attack, not able to get the benefits he deserves and now this. how does this resonate with you? i'm talking about the proposed budget cuts and what it means to people like you? >> with the budget cuts that are coming down for our current service members, it is very detrimental to them. it's basically showing them they're not worth that much. in terms of war, this is like being a body being expendable, g.i. issue. it is sad because when we join the military they say we're family strong first as far as army component. with everyone else, it kind of makes you wonder is this a choice we really should make and that's a large because we do need to defend our standard of living in our country. >> quickly, 9/11 we had a different enemy than we had on september 10. the only thing we know is we're not ready to fight any battle let alone the one that
